It was a cool, crisp Fall morning. I decided to take advantage of some alone time and go for a run. I've always loved running with company, it seems to make the time fly by. But recently, I have been running by myself... or so I thought. Fresh Pond is my route du' jour. I know the distance and it's away from traffic. While I was finishing my usual loop around the area, I suddenly realized I wasn't alone. The trees, water and even the wind was encouraging me to go a little farther. So for the first time, I ran the circuit 2 times. The second time I took it easy and enjoyed the view. My running partner is quiet, but very supportive. I had a smooth trail with fresh air to energize me to keep going. Some people say nature is inspiring to the artist. I say, it inspires the athlete. Next time, I think my partner might suggest 3 laps!
I took this beautiful picture today, of my running partner.
